Gehwol: Softening Balsam za stopala in noge

IMG_7730

Kot sem že omenila v prejšnji objavi, se ta teden posvečamo nogam, bolj natančno stopalom. Tako sem tudi že najavila, da bom ocenjevala tale balzam za noge in stopala. Gehwol sicer še nisem uporabljala, to je moj prvi produkt od njih in še tega mi je sestra podarila. 😉

As I mentioned in my previous post, I’m devoting this week to legs, more precisely to feet. I also already announced that I would be reviewing this balsam for legs and feet. I haven’t used Gehwol yet, this is my first product from them and this was gifted to me by my sister. 😉

Embalaža je tuba s pokrovom na poklop, ki je mat bele barve, z modrim in rdečim napisom ter sliko. Tuba je zapakirana še v škatlo. Embalaža funkcionira dobro, tudi dozira se enostavno. Sama krema, balzam, je bele barve in je zelo dobro mazljiva. Jaz ponavadi nanesem količino enega fižola za eno stopalo. Je nežnega, skoraj nezaznavnega vonja, kar me ne moti, saj so stopala tako ali tako predaleč, da bi jih vohala. 😀 Za sabo pusti mehko in navlaženo, negovano kožo, kar potrjujejo tudi sestavine, saj sta sečnina (urea) ter avokadovo olje na drugem in tretjem mestu. Balzam prav tako vsebuje aktivne sestavine iz mleka in medu, ki kožo negujejo.

The packaging is a tube with a click on lid, which is a matte white color with blue and red lettering and a picture. The tube is packaged in a box as well. The packaging functions well, the dosing is easy. The cream, balm, itself is white and is very malleable. I usually apply a dose of a bean on each foot. It has a subtle, almost imperceptible scent, which doesn’t bother me, since the feet are way too far for me to smell them. 😀 It leaves behind a soft and moisturized, nourished skin, which is confirmed by the ingredients as well, because urea and avocado oil are on the second and third spot. The balm also contains active ingredients from milk and honey, that nourish the skin.

Krema se vpija do 10 minut, kar je hitro, vendar pa če se vam mudi, mogoče tudi ne dovolj hitro. Jaz jo najraje nanesem zvečer, ko nimam več planov oziroma pred spanjem. Ker se ne vpije takoj je tudi dobra za masažo stopal, ki si jo lahko naredimo sami ali pa prosimo partnerja, da nam jih zmasira.

The cream takes about 10 minutes to absorb, which is fast, but not fast enough if you’re in a hurry. I like to apply it at night, when I don’t have any more plans or before sleep. It’s great for massaging you feet because it doesn’t absorb immediately, which you can do yourself or ask your partner to massage them.

Meni je krema zelo všeč in jo z veseljem uporabljam. 125ml bo mi zadostovalo za kar nekaj časa, za balzam pa boste odšteli 11,50€. Kupite ga lahko v spletni trgovini Lekarnar.com in verjetno še kje, vendar žal ne vem kje, saj kot sem omenila, sem kremo dobila v dar. Za oceno Lusheve maske za stopala pa kliknite tukaj.

I like the cream very much and I love to use it. 125ml will be enough for quite some time and you will pay 11,50€ for it. You can buy it on the website Lekarnar.com and probably elsewhere as well, but sadly I don’t know where, because as I mentioned already, I got the cream as a gift.

Lush: Volcano foot mask

IMG_7699

Ker je vreme kočno toplo je prišel tudi čas japonk in sandal. In kaj to pomeni? To pomeni, da je potrebno poskrbeti za stopala. Čeprav si jaz s stopali nisem najbolj na ti, pa vseeno skrbim, da izgledajo negovana in urejena. Na srečo nimam zelo trde ali suhe kože, ampak vseeno moram skrbeti, da se to ne zgodi. Torej, ta teden, se bomo posvečali stopalom. 😉

Since the weather is warm it’s finally time for flip flops and sandals. And what does that mean? It means that we have to take care of our feet. Although I’m not into feet that much, I still see that they look nice and taken care of. Luckily I don’t have very hard or dry skin, but I still have to prevent it. So we’re devoting this week to feet. 😉

Ker veliko časa preživim na Lushevi spletni strani, kot tudi v trgovini, sem se odločila raziskati področje nege stopal. In kaj hitro sem našla to masko, ki je vzbudila moje zanimanje, predvsem zaradi dejstva, da vsebuje cimet. Vsi, ki me malo boljše poznate, veste, da sem čisto nora na cimet. 😀 Zato sem se tudi odločila masko poskusiti.

Because I spend a lot of time on the Lush website, as in the store I decided to explore the field of foot care. I found this mask, that intrigued my interest, because of the fact that it contains cinnamon. And everyone that knows me a bit better, know, that I’m crazy about cinnamon. 😀 That’s also why I decided to try out this mask.

Maska je pakirana v črnem Lushevem lončku, z napisi in navodili. Praktično in uporabno. Meni diši maska čudovito, cimet je precej v ospredju. Je sivo bele barve, saj vsebuje tudi kaolinsko glino. Konsistenca je zelo gosta in med prsti čutimo plovec. Med nanašanjem se kar hitro suši, zato priporočam da imate vse pripravljeno vnaprej. Masko je potrebno nanesti na stopala in jih zaviti v folijo, ter jih pustiti počivati okoli 10 minut.

The mask is packed in a black Lush pot, with inscriptions and instructions. It’s practical and useful. I love the scent of the mask, the cinnamon is in the forefront for sure. It’s a white-ish gray color, because it contains kaolin clay as well. The consistency is really thick and we can feel the pumice between our fingers. It dries quite fast while applying so I recommend that you prepare everything in advance. You should apply the mask to the feet, wrap them in foil and leave to rest for about 10 minutes.

Zaradi cimeta in folije v kombinaciji je občutek na koži “pekoč” oziroma topel (če ste že kdaj poskusili kakšno toplo masko, potem lahko učinek primerjate). Meni je všeč, saj je maska na začetku hladna in mi stopala ohladi (hranim jo v hladilniku), ko jih zavijem v folijo, pa vedno bolj topla. Teh 10-15 minut sem si vzela zase in se zleknila na kavč. 🙂 Po pretečenem času, sem si stopala umila. Zmehčano kožo na podplatih sem izkoristila in po stopalih podrgnila s plovcem za odstranjevanje trde kože. Svež občutek na nogah je prisoten še nekaj časa (okrog pol ure). Prav tako sem nanesla še Gehwol Softening Balzam (ocena v petek) in nega je bila zaključena.

The feeling on the skin is “burning” or warm (if you ever tried a warm mask, then you can compare the effect) because of the cinnamon and foil combination. I like it, because in the beginning it cools your feet, because the mask is cool (I keep it in the fridge) and when I foil them the warmth increases. I took those 10-15 minutes for myself and stretched out on the couch. 🙂 After the time passed, I washed my feet. I took advantage of my softened skin on my soles and rubbed them with a pumice stone for removing hard skin. The fresh feeling on the feet stays a while (for about half an hour). I also applied the Gehwol Softening Balsam (review on Friday) and the foot treatment was completed.

Maske je 125g, kar bo zame dovolj za 3-4 nanose. Torej porabi se je relativno veliko, odvisno koliko nanesete (jaz sem stopala popolnoma prekrila z masko). Masko bi lahko načeloma nanesli tudi samo na podplate, kar bi zmanjšalo količino nanosa. Zame bo to dovolj za čez poletje in razvajanje enkrat na mesec.  Masko lahko kupite v Lushevih trgovinah za 11,95€. Jaz si jo bom sigurno še privoščila in jo tudi priporočam. Za več informacij, sestavine, kliknite tukaj.

You get 125g of the mask, which will be enough for about 3-4 applications. So you use relatively a lot, it depends on how much you apply (I covered my feet entirely with the mask). You could apply the mask to your soles only, which would decrease the amount you would use. For me, this will be enough for the summer  and pampering once a month. You can buy the mask in Lush stores for 11.95€. I will definitely buy it again and I do recommend it. For more information, ingredients, click here
